"Up In The Sky" is a talk to God that can't make lifes better, can't really talk to people, but Noel wants to welcome God in his world, talk to him, teach him to fly...
"Columbia" is my favourite tune on this album. It's too long (6m. 17s.) but you really don't feel the time flyin' away with this song...
Oasis' first single "Supersonic" is the song withouh a sense in the lyrics, some kinda "She've done it with a doctor on a helicopter-she's sniffin' in the tissue sailing the 'Big Issue'...", but music is awesome, and if you are really feelin' down this tune rises you up higher and higher...
"Bring It On Down" is the song about the "anti-fans" of Oasis. Noel says that you can listen to other bands, but you really must not come and f*ck up Oasis' live concerts if you don't like it...
"Cigarettes And Alcohol" is killing with it's dizzing guitar riffes and embarrased and sometimes disgusting Liam's vocals, but it tells us about the only thing that the youth needs. So truly, so bright, so kind and killing...
"Digsy's Dinner"-no comments, the rock'n'roll classic of 90-s.
"Slide Away" is the one song that appears in 3 Oasis' albums: "Definitely Maybe" and 2 singles: "Whatever" (19.12.1994) and "Champagne Supernova" (1995) and this makes "Slide Away" classic and the one of favorites... Like a "Columbia" it's long (6.32), but nothing can make this song bad or boring.
"Married With Children" is the song about Noel's ex-girlfriend that said him that he makes "music shite". Bright and light tune finishes the album and you can't think of anything after this...
Listen this album and you really find out the original classix of 90-s, the rest and the best. *)
P.S. "Definitely Maybe" is the best album of UK of the rest 50 years (UK poll result in 2008), and "Live Forever" is the best UK song ever (UK radio and TV poll results in 2009).
In a bit, DOYS.
But the best album they made was their first album called B.R.M.C. It is really a well shaped collection of wonderful songs that take you high up to the sky with its pure melodies and Peter Hayes’s velvet vocal. They really have a very good taste for music and each of their song is beautiful in its own way. Positive and dreamy Awake, cute and melodic Down Here with a very pretty background solo are one of the many pearls of the album. They even have some country sound in some songs like Screaming Gun, as if taken from old Westerns, while Spread your Love and Whatever Happened to My Rock’n’roll are perfect crazy dancing songs with endless passion and desire! Head up High and Too Real are such lovely ballads you can not believe can be sung by the same B.R.M.C Does it feel too real , When everything you've learned to love seems to change? Does it feel too real When everything you love to fear seems the same?...
As Sure as the Sun sounds even a bit like grunge with its dominant bass and interesting outro where Peter mumbles “I’m gonna take my time” with a voice as if during church ceremonies. At my Door is a wonderful acoustic song and its waves resemble the flying birds in a pure summer blue sky. Love burns deserves a special attention as it is an unbelievably powerful song sticking to your mind and making you feel the love burning inside you. It makes you want to lose your mind and sink into the absorbing sea of love and fever. I like the guitars in these song suddenly “switching into the song with a loud distortion” emphasizing the strong and catchy chorus you want to repeat all the time in your mind!
Red Eyes and Tears is quite hard probably the hardest song in the album with hard lyrics too, a very passionate song too despite the monotone vocal. It has a winning solo and drums.
Rifles is another masterpiece of this album with a «stretching singing style» which is the main salt of the song. It has impressive lyrics too: I see the color in your eyes, I see the images I own, I see more color in your eyes, Than the reflections from purple skies.
Salvation sounds very much like Blur’s Tender to me, it has the same drums and very similar chorus, the same majesty and love theme.
Here is the B.R.M.C.'s self titled debut album: 14 incredible songs which make you want them more and more and never get bored of listening to. Here is a band with a long name that gets stuck for a long time in your mind. ..
Listening to Z-Sides I thought that it was not 33 old women that wrote these songs, it was a 16 years old girl Zemfira lived in Ufa... So light, so bright, so simple but so interesting... Very interesting trumpet of Konstantin Kulikov, very good vocals and lyrics... It is good... There are only 9 songs in this album, each of it dures about 2.5 minutes, but it's so fine... My fav song on this album is Австралия (Australia), so lyricly and simple, so fine... And there is the tracklist of Z-Sides :
- Петарды (Petards)
- Гаражи (Garages)
- Из Головы (Out Of My head)
- Австралия (Australia)
- Интересно (Interesting)
- Поцелуи (Kisses)
- Для Тебя (For You)
- Антананариву (Antananarivu)
- Не Стреляйте (Don't Shoot)
Number 4 and number 8 make you so happy and fine and if you feel bad these songs can help you///
In a bit, Doys...

I was so delighted listening this album, and I thought for a moment that Noel could have been a solo artist ‘cos his performances of Oasis’ “The Best” is really the best ones ever…
P.S. Waiting for Noel’s solo album harder every day…
P.P.S. Don’t believe that crap that Liam has plans to be a movie star… He’s so busy and tired…
in a bit... DOYS...
I am sure most of you spend lots of time digging out your soul trying to understand yourself and through understanding yourself try to grasp this unimaginably insane world surrounding us!
For those who just start listening to OASIS wonderful feelings are waiting ahead! OASIS music is bringing such a feeling of freedom, self-confidence and belief in own abilities that it really resembles an oasis at a desert whispering that maybe it's gonna be the one to save you... The songs are about YOU, each and every one, texts are not a masterpiece but they are so close to what you feel right now, right here, that you just can’t stop feeling yourself a hero of each of their song which have already become talismans of your life! This is OASIS! Once you love them you can’t stop anymore!..
Well, of course Liam, no matter how often he rejects this, is totally “living” John Lennon and OASIS too could never refuse being too much like The Beatles sometimes. But this is not awkward: writing songs which are like songs you love most is natural! Of course, you can’t avoid similarities and associations! They are also blamed for being too self-enamored! But they are OASIS! They have the right to love themselves if the whole world does! Though I would dispute over Noel’s being the best songwriter in the world which he likes to repeat so often…J))))))
We can discuss these crazy brothers behavior for centuries but they have a better topic to be offered: their latest album, Dig Out Your Soul. This album was soooooo longed for that there were probably too high expectations and when it was released at last it got a huge pile of criticism-full reviews! In this album not only Noel but the band all members had a role in songwriting. The best song in the album, warmly accepted by the critiques, and of course, created by the Noel The Great, Falling Down, has a rich sound and ironic words that get stuck deeply in your mind:
If you won't save me please don't waste my time...
Liam's wonderful melancholic ballad I'm Outta Time is quite philosophical and deep ... These words are especially killing (though Liam took it from somewhere else, but still!)
If i'm to fall, would you be there to applaud, or would you hide behind the law...
In general this album lyrics are much more mature making us hope that the Gallagher brothers have at last grown up! (though maybe it is better not?)
The Shock of the Lightning, the first single, from the album is very energetic with a huge drive and is just like a crazy traffic running in front of your eyes!
Waiting For The Rapture has very solemn drums and is one of «non-Noel» songs. It's quite different from OASIS music, very bluesy and you can hardly believe this is Oasis!
Bag It Up is the opening song which guitar riffs you make you feel you're riding a motorcycle taking you on a speedy tour! It has absolutely unsolvable lyrics pronounced with such a confidence by Liam that you think it's you that are probably out of your wits, not him! )))
The Turning is very rhythmic (all in all it seems OASIS worked hard and put a special accent on drums in this album!) with a “harder” vocal, a very good song that has drive and inner strength!
We live with the numbers,
Mining a dream for the same old song,
What hope for the turning,
If everything you know is wrong…
High Horse Lady deserves special attention due to its interesting vocal as if coming from a tube and wonderful claps making it so special! Ain’t Got Nothing is a very “I don’t care song” sooo characteristic for Liam (one of his songs in the album) and is actually based on a true story about Liam’s being caught and taken to prison though he hadn’t done anything.
The Nature Of Reality is another strong song with thoughts of dialectical nature that is coming from afar and attacking you with its repeating heavy guitar solos and rhythmic and somehow different form usual OASIS style besides that nice part with ay-I-ay-ay.
The most boring monotone song in the album that I personally hardly listen to is Soldier On. It has no melody even, very inert and nothing new.
I like especially To Be Where There’s Life lyrics which I wrote below!
Dig out your soul, cos here we go
We gotta move, it's what we do
Let me come through
Let me take you away to be where there's life
To be where there's life…
So let OASIS take you to where there’ s life…
